Pillory Beach

Pillory Beach is arguably the prettiest beach on the island of Grand Turk. You could also argue that it is the best beach on the island for scuba diving. A reef-laden wall lies just 400 yards offshore, and the resident Bohio Dive Resort & Spa offers an excellent dive shop. Turks and Caicos diving in general is known for its quality, and a stay at the Bohio Dive Resort on Pillory Beach can make for an ideal scuba escape.

You can find Pillory Beach on Grand Turk's western side. To the near south is the capital city of Cockburn Town, and even closer is the best museum in the Turks and Caicos. This museum is the Turks and Caicos National Museum. Doing some sightseeing in Cockburn Town and visiting the Turks and Caicos National Museum are among the most highly recommended things to do on Grand Turk island, as is spending some quality time at Pillory Beach.

Soft sand that is brilliantly white and relatively calm waters that exhibit a spectacular turquoise color are what you will find at Pillory Beach Grand Turk. Whether you book a stay at the Bohio Dive Resort & Spa or not, you can consider arranging scuba diving excursions at its PADI-certified shop if you want to explore the clear turquoise waters. It is also possible to rent snorkeling gear if you prefer.

The Bohio Dive Resort & Spa, it should be mentioned, offers excellent dive and hotel packages that are all inclusive, and guests can consider fun boat excursions to nearby cays on the side. When you're not diving and taking fun trips to area cays during your stay at this wonderful resort, you can enjoy a variety of other fun activities at no extra charge. These activities include ocean kayaking, biking, and yoga.
